Cheonggye Stream

Cheonggye Stream in Seoul

" Cheonggyecheon (Hangul: 청계천) is a nearly 6km long, modern public recreation space in downtown Seoul, South Korea. The massive urban renewal project is on the site of a stream that flowed before the rapid post-war economic development required it to be covered by transportation infrastructure. The $900 million project attracted much criticism initially but opened in 2005 and is now popular among Seoul residents and tourists." (Wikipedia)
